I'm visiting NYC in December 2013, 21 to 28 December.
I was wondering if any advice can be offered as to which sports are playing or are recommended to see? From my research I've found there is a NFL game on the 23rd December (Jets v Cleveland). I was wondering if any other sports (NHL maybe?) will have matches in December?
We aren't fussed which match or sport we see - we are mainly keen to experience the atmosphere of a US sporting match!
Also, I posed a question in the Lake Placid forum, but haven't had any replies. I was wondering what sort of car (regular, SUV etc) is recommended for driving around the areas of Washington DC, Albany NY and Lake Placid NY in December? I'm coming from Australia so am not familiar with roads when cold / icy /snowy and would love to hear what sort of vehicle would be best for that time of year - I understand the weather is completely unpredictable though.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
